With the news breaking this morning that Prue Leith took to Twitter to announce the winner of The Great British Bake Off 12 hours before the final show aired fans have been asking if the judge on the show will get the sack or not.
Now it’s been said by Bake off itself that she will NOT be sacked as Channel 4 have apparently had a meeting.
Producers of the show have said that Prue’s job is safe and she will be returning next year alongside Paul Hollywood, Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding.
An insider has said:
“We can’t be angry with Prue because we love her so much,”
“It’s hard to be cross for something that was just an awful mistake.
“No one’s going to feel worse about it than she does herself. She’s mortified.”
Late on during the day Prue took to social media again and tweeted:
“I am so sorry to the fans for my mistake this morning, I am in a different time zone and mortified by my error.”
Fans ahve been left angered with her announcing the winner before the show.
